Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! Today I have a mixed media style Christmas card to share:
I combined a variety of my favorite products and techniques to create this card. 
The doe was die cut using a Sizzix Tim Holtz die, painted with Distress Paint then dusted with Distress Glitter. The background was created using a piece of water color paper, painted with Gesso, then I applied texture and design using a Heidi Swapp stencil along with texture paste. Once the background was dry, I randomly applied embossing ink followed with embossing powder and heat creating a winter wonderland like background:
I stamped a sentiment from a PTI stamp set using Ranger Adirondack Ink, trimmed to size then inked the edges with Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink:
I'm entering this card in the following challenges: 
for theme inspiration, I joined along with the current Mixed Media Monthly Card challenge where the theme is Family:
for sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current retro sketches sketch challenge:
 and for color inspiration, I joined along with the current color throwdown color challenge:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have enjoyed my card.
Be Sweet ;)

Your card is a boatload off gorgeousness, Mona! Love that pink deer. For some reason, I love pink on Christmas cards. I don't often use it myself (go figure!), but I love it when I see it.
